So I went to Office Depot with a friend yesterday. At the entrance, there's a big sign announcing that they're hiring "friendly, happy people." He's socially awkward, and I'm a bit depressed. We burst out laughing and decide we'd better not apply.
My friend finishes his shopping, and we head to the cashier...
Cashier: How was your shopping experience today?
Friend: I got everything I came for.
Cashier: Were you able to find everything you were looking for?
Poor cashier. I guess they're trained to follow the script even when it totally doesn't make sense.
I once called customer service some years ago, I don't recall the company, and asked a couple of very legit and relevant questions. The representative kept saying the questions wasn't on her list. She got her supervisor and the supervisor said the same even after I asked who I might talk with. Must have been a very short list that left out a lot of potential questions customers would ask...
I was at a complete loss
